    I guess try unpack and analyse the contents of the sources? I'm not sure what it means.

    Tbh, just make sure you analyse, support any verdicts, cross reference ofc, and try to challenge statements from one source using another with your own knowledge as further evidence.

    I did not think the Kkk was coming up😩 I didn't know what points to say for why they declined so I just said corruption and change in attitudes and talked about black people, for the reasons why they revived I said ww1 red scare and incorporated the birth of the nation

    Did anyone do the left wing critics question? Because it asked about 1930s I used both first new deal and obvs social security in the second new deal acts.. Was this too much of a risk?!

    I did this question! I wrote about the SSA in 1938- it was still the 1930s so I'd assume that it was fine?

    I'm looking at all the other edexcel threads and they all are saying their questions were really nice... Anyone else think the questions for us were a massive curveball?

    Felt like crying when I opened the paper but after a bit of thinking I chose the KKK question and it wasn't so bad. And the 40 markers were ok!

    the New Deal sources were quite tricky but it was so nice to structure, which is what I was worried about... hopefully my KKK answer will pull it up, really liked that question even though it was a bit different to what we're used to!

    Did people talk about right-wing critics as well as left-wing?

    My structure was a bit off but I think my own knowledge was exactly what I wanted it to be so I'm happy!
